Forum: classic_tv Subject: Why is "Shower of Stars" considered to be one of the worst series ever?

I just viewed two episodes and it didn't seem bad at all.

One was a very politically incorrect episode called "Time Out for Ginger" starring the great Jack Benny (I'd watch him in anything), and the other episode titled "High Pitch" was a delightful musical with Tony Martin, Marguerite Piazza, William Frawley, & Vivian Vance. Even Jack Albertson makes an uncredited appearance as a bartender!

Both episodes have fun dated references to things like rock'n'roll, a few G-Rated sex jokes, and the second episode features a commercial for a product that never came to market (a mid-1950s prototype for a turbine car)!

Both episodes seem to be public domain.....I'll try to upload them within the next few days.
